Merry Christmas my friends

This holiday season flew by.  I can’t believe it’s already over.  This Christmas we decided to celebrate in Los Angeles.  In the past I’ve always gone home to Canada or to Spain to visit our family.  This year we finally ended up having Christmas at our home in LA.  My parents flew in and we celebrated with my Brother and Sister in Law and niece.  Celebrating with children really brings back the magic of the holidays.

 Carlota was so excited opening her presents, listening to christmas carols, and eating all the delicious food.  I’m so lucky to have a husband who loves to cook…and is really good at it.  He made such a feast of Classic Catalan Christmas dishes , after lunch, we watched Home Alone and most of us passed out.  Later in the evening we did the Caga tio (a Catalan tradition of hitting a log and then finding little gifts if you’ve been nice).  Carlota got really excited as we each took our turns and somehow ended up helping each of us.  We ended the night sitting around the kitchen table having coffee and slovak cookies and just enjoying eachothers company.  What more can you ask for?

As I sit here thinking about the momentous day, I can’t help but get excited about some new traditions we will incorporate to our future Christmases.

My heart is so full as I’m able to share these holidays with my loved ones.  This really is the meaning of the holidays and that was on full effect for me this year.  What did you do yesterday?  What is one of your family’s traditions?

With Love,

Andrea

Holiday Photoshoot

I can’t believe it’s already December.  Time really does fly when you’re having fun.  We are getting ready for our first Christmas with Carlota and there hasn’t been a dull moment.  I decided this was the year I was going to start sending Holiday cards to family and friends.  I know I’m totally late on that bandwagon but its better late than never.  We had our photoshoot on the beach….because why not when you live in LA.  No winter wonderland backdrops for us here.

This Christmas we will be heading to Spain to visit family.  I’m so excited and I can’t believe we are going in just a few short weeks.  This will be a long flight for Carlota, but thankfully our recent trip to NYC will help make us better prepared.  On our last flight there was a family with a baby sitting right in front of us.  They were baby traveling experts and had all these snacks and teething crackers and opened our eyes to that world…..we have never looked back!!

Here are some of my favorite shots from our family photo shoot.  What are your plans for the Holidays?Pi_Family_002Pi_Family_003Pi_Family_005Pi_Family_008.jpgPi_Family_007Pi_Family_009Pi_Family_030Pi_Family_011Pi_Family_010
